While Bollywood brings out multiple films every year, sadly, good films don’t release every weekend. But when they do, they stay with you for a long, long time. 

Be it the performances, songs or even some trivia about it, every aspect of the film intrigues us. And in this list of intriguing aspects, deleted scenes from a film hold a special place.

Sometimes, the best of the scenes get deleted because they disrupt the flow of the narrative and sometimes, because the film works even without them. But whatever be the case, these scenes definitely inform us more about the characters and story that has us invested.

Here are 10 of the deleted scenes from popular Bollywood films that you shouldn’t miss:

1. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

This scene was Simran‘s original introduction in the film. 

While it doesn’t reveal much about her, it provids quite an insight into Amrish Puri’s character. Why Bauji became the khadoos bauji, this scene has all the answers.

2. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani

The first half of the film had Naina as the outsider who is trying to make friends in a new environment. But when we see her after the interval, she is Aditi‘s best friend. 

That jump was quite sudden but that’s mainly because this bonding scene between the two was deleted from the film.

3. Dear Zindagi

Alia’s character finishes her journey in the film by making a movie about Donna Maria and dedicates it to Jehangir Khan

In this deleted scene, we see how SRK’s character actually told her the story and it created a huge impact on Kaira‘s mind. This one is a particularly beautiful scene.
